New Lost City Ramblers

In the original notes to this recording, Mike Seeger writes, "The songs on this album were recorded by commercial companies and the Library of Congress in the southeastern mountains between 1925 and 1935, and show the first attempts of the hill musicians to ‘make a hit' with old traditional songs that had been in the mountains since pioneer days."
